|Issue Date:||1994||Citation:||Gwee, M.C.E., Low, K.S.Y., Gopalakrishnakone, P., Yuen, R., Khoo, H.E. (1994). A review of stonefish venoms and toxins. Pharmacology and Therapeutics 64 (3) : 509-528. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/0163-7258(94)90022-1||Abstract:||Venoms from stonefish (genus Synanceja) have marked effects on the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems and on vascular permeability; the venoms also exhibit haemolytic and hyaluronidase activity. Recently, a toxic protein, stonustoxin (SNTX), was purified from the venom of S. horrida: the primary lethal action of SNTX has been attributed to its potent endothelium-dependent vasorelaxant activity causing a rapid, marked and irreversible hypotension; the other actions of SNTX resemble those of the stonefish crude venoms.||Source Title:||Pharmacology and Therapeutics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/33949||ISSN:||01637258||DOI:||10.1016/0163-7258(94)90022-1|
